The list author says: "The best books are the first 25 or so items. be sure to check out my listmania entitled "Organic Structure Determination by mass spec., NMR, IR, UV" for your more advanced courses"
"very good. A simpler university book but there's nothing wrong with that especially when new to the subject. It doesn't cover all details you'll see in more advanced books & would need to be supplemented if trying to use it for a full year course."
"written for British university students which makes it more advanced and somewhat less suitable for North American students. but it is comprehensive and up to date and doesn't simply copy the same boring reactions and molecules found in other works. It charts its own course."
"Don't let the title fool you - it doesn't really have any 'how-to' pointers. It's just like Schaum's - relatively low quality paper stock, paperback book to help you along with short bits of 'programmed' info. Not sure why the used copies are so expensive. My copy was dirt cheap."
"Similar to the Demystified book. A basic intro and it doesn't even cover carbonyl chemistry! (that's quite an achievement - writing an o-chem book and not even mentioning one of the most important functional groups). You'll probably have to buy the associated workbook to get anything out of it."
